Get Involved

CWES PTO has tons of opportunities for Parents to be involved! 



Sunday April 28th

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM 


Dear Cogburn Woods Families,


Due to inclement weather forecasts, the much-anticipated CWE Carnival has been rescheduled to Sunday, April 28th (1PM-4PM).  We understand that this change may be an inconvenience for many of our families. Our priority is to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

The PTO will be offering wristband refunds only for families that have already purchased event wristbands.  Refund requests can be submitted between April 19th – April 24th, 2024.  If you are no longer able to attend the new date or have concerns about the potential threat of adverse weather on April 28th, we encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity for a refund.  

Please note that we are actively monitoring the weather forecast for our rescheduled date of April 28th and there is potential for adverse weather on this date as well.  Should we have to cancel Carnival on April 28th, wristband refunds WILL NOT be provided under any circumstances.  


**No refund requests will be accepted after Wednesday, April 24th, 2024.**



After logging into the PTO website, you will see an option to Submit a Carnival Refund Request.  We also made a short how-to video that can be found here:

Please note that we are unable to offer refunds on ticket purchases for this event.  Tickets are valuable and can be used as currency during the carnival. They can also be shared with friends and neighbors or used for entries into our exciting raffle baskets. If you haven't had the chance to check out our amazing raffle baskets yet, they're currently on display in the CWE Front Lobby.

You're welcome to drop by the school anytime between 7:00 AM and 2:30 PM from April 18th to April 26th to view the baskets and enter the drawing.  Don't miss out on this opportunity to win some fantastic prizes!

Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the rescheduling of the carnival. We appreciate your understanding and continued support. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Thank you for being part of the CWE community, and we look forward to seeing you at the carnival on April 28th!


Warm regards,


Kelli Lathem & Cristina Allan

CWE PTO Co-Presidents

Carnival Basket Information:

Each homeroom is asked to provide a themed basket to be raffled at our carnival.  Baskets are wrapped and displayed in the school the week prior to carnival.  On the event day, baskets will be displayed in the Cafeteria.  Winners will be drawn at 4:00 pm and baskets can be picked up at the end of carnival in the cafeteria.  Please make sure your name and phone number are clearly printed on your raffle tickets.  Tickets without all needed information will not be used as winners.  If we are unable to read the handwriting, we must draw another name as the winner.  A tip from the experts: Print your name and phone number on labels and use those on the back of tickets.  This is best done with pre-order raffle tickets.



To hold a successful carnival, we depend on volunteers to make the event a success.  Volunteers will check-in to the left of the main entrance. Volunteers will be given a parking pass that allows access to the CWE parking spots in the upper parking lot on a first-come first-serve basis. Volunteer shifts are available through the CWE PTO website.



General parking is on a first-come first-serve basis and will be available at Hopewell Middle School. Vehicles blocking the roads or intersections will be towed at the owner’s expense.  Emergency services will be provided by the City of Milton and must have access into and out of the school at all times.  Vendors and sponsors with tents will have reserved spaces in the lower front lot.  Handicap accessible parking will be available in the CWE parking lots as designated.


All parking at CWE will be limited to PTO Business Partners, CWE Staff, and our event Volunteers.   A parking attendant will ask to see either your parking pass issued by PTO or a CWE Staff ID Card.  All others will be redirected to Hopewell Middle School.  No exceptions.


Restroom Access:

Restroom access will be located inside the school at the Gymnasium. Classrooms and the rest of the school are closed to the public except for designated areas and personnel.
